Pray for Our World: Monaco

Monaco is the second smallest state in the world, with an area of 2 sq km.  Used as a byword for a very high standard of living, most revenue comes from tourism, gambling, and a tax haven.  The prince of this state has been from the house of Grimaldi since 1297.  The religious culture is Catholic, but the real culture of Monaco is materialistic hedonism.  It sounds similar to Las Vegas in the US.  There are over 160 nationalities there with most being expats.  Pray that the small number of Christian evangelicals that are there will find a culturally appropriate way to witness in a country where it is regarded as socially unacceptable.
